Every child deserves to experience joy, challenge,  and personal relevance in the academic curricula they experience. In the need and pressure to cover unfinished instructional content, be careful not to sacrifice depth of learning, and be wary of over-remediation or over-assessment. Prioritize the most important concepts, skills, and standards, rather than focusing on “covering” or catching up.
